Last summer while metal detecting in the water in front of the Fountain Bleu Hotel in Miami Beach a mature woman approached me from the shore wearing nothing but a skimpy
bottom of a bathing suit.

I must say that I was quite surprised and she proceeded to tell me that she lost her wedding band and If I located it she would reward me with 500.00 dollars.

I told her that it was possible she lost it elsewhere, but she insisted that it was somewhere near by.

Of course I kept admiring and staring at her not wearing a top and agreed to search.

Moments later when I located an underwater object and scooped it up, the entire family ran from the beach and into the water to see if I had found the ring.

This time her well tanned sisters, nieces and daughters are also not wearing their tops either. What a great site to see and of course they remained with me in the waist high water while I took my sweet time attempting to locate any valuables or coins.

My only problem at the end of several hours of searching and focusing at half naked french women was that I forgot I had no sunscreen and my entire upper body was on fire particularly my bald head was scorched.

It was a great experience, but painful at the end of the day...

I love detecting and find this story to be fun and not at all offensive. You never know what you'll find while out detecting.

I can honestlty say that I had reservations about posting this tale. It did not offend me, however, it may offend others.

I do appreciate the story though. It sure is different. I'll see what kind of feedback it receives. If it is negative, I'll have to delete it. Although, I think it's fine, and quite entertaining.

But you never told us if you found the ring.
